Bioware has not released an official skill tree for the Jedi class, we have been treated to a few sneak peak videos which show a fair amount about the class. We also know the some other key pieces of information surrounding the class, such as specializations, that grant further insight into how the class can best be used. Keep in mind this is a preemptive Star Wars the Old Republic Jedi Knight : Progression Guide, and is largely a collection of thoughts on where the class skills seem to be leading.
First lets examine the outfitting of the Jedi Knight. The holonet states that many Jedi Knights wear heavy armor in combat. Combine this with the combat tactics section of the holonet which states their roles as either defending allies from blaster bolts or charging Sith Lords. Then we have to take into account what we can see in the teaser videos that have been released, and from what I’m seeing it seems like a fairly certain bet that they are mirrors to the Sith Lord.
In this Star Wars the Old Republic Jedi Knight : Progression Guide, though it may be a bit early, I’m going to recommend you lean towards the Guardian specialization for leveling. The sentinel specializes in wielding two lightsabers at once, versus the guardian who “dares opponents to attack”. We can extrapolate that the sentinel is the damage dealing variation of the Jedi Knight class. As a damage dealer a sentinel is going to be better able to more quickly eliminate threats they encounter alone. If you are instancing, or working consistently in a group or guild, then a guardian could prove a stronger choice. Also if you aren’t concerned with leveling up as quickly as possible, the Guardian could prove much more survivable character. Even though damage per second classes have historically been quicker levelers in past MMORPGs that is no guarantee that the Old Republic Jedi Knight will fall into the same mold.
At this point your best bet is to keep your eyes open for news and wait for a future Star Wars the Old Republic Jedi Knight : Progression Guide, one that will be released the second Bioware releases a little more information on the class.
If you’re looking for more than preliminary info, this SWTOR Jedi Knight Guide is recommended. The manual is also available as part of a SWTOR Complete Guides Bundle; further recommended for serious SWTOR gamers.
